Military Review

US media: Trump is considering new attacks on Syria

34
American edition The Washington Post reported that in the US military is hatched a plan to strike at Syria. The speech came about the fact that the US administration is not satisfied with how the events unfold in the SAR and therefore is preparing "new military measures." Once again it was stated that the White House expressed "extreme concern over the use of chlorine in Syria." In other words, there is a search for a reason for the expansion of intervention in intra Syrian affairs.


Now Pentagon officials are trying to refute James Mattis and Donald Trump’s discussion of a possible military strike against Syria. US Department of Defense spokeswoman Dana White said that Mattis did not attend the meeting with Trump.



However, the US media also contains a statement from another (unnamed) representative of the administration, who confirmed the participation of the head of the Pentagon in the conversation:
This can be called a discussion, but the result is still unknown. Mattis did not support military retaliation for Asad’s use of chemical weapons. McMaster (Assistant to the President of the United States for National Security) called for such attacks.


Recall that earlier Trump gave the order to strike with Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian Air Force base in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons in Khan-Sheikhoun. Then most of the American cruise missiles reached the target. At the same time, no evidence that chemical weapons were used by the Assad forces has yet been presented. The OPCW mission did not even conduct elementary research, simply deciding not to get to Khan-Sheikhoun.

        It was in the case of the use of weapons of mass destruction - this is our doctrine, the rest are valid contracts.

      But seriously, we won’t do anything. Amer says that the sanctions will be lifted when we stop interfering in the affairs of other countries (USA, Ukraine, etc.), and we are trying to make excuses that this is not. However, they do not hide their interference and call it democracy.
      That's when we start giving erysipelas without fear of the sanctions imposed, then we will be respected.

        The answer should always be. And for PMC she was. Yes, he who has eyes - he will see, but he who has ears - hears. Only ours do not make shows out of this, to whom it should be - the message comes to that. You think it's just that Metis doesn't support Trump in striking Syria?

          Do you think the Mad Dog will have more brains? Well, if so. If this time we do not help with air defense, the Syrians are worthless to us as allies .... although Jewish planes are no longer acting insolently.

            Métis is far but not for this and rose from lieutenants to Minister of Defense. I think they will not make a fool the Minister of Defense. Too much on this planet depends on the decision of the person. And those who put him there want to live in a blooming oasis, and not in a radioactive desert, having spent their whole lives and finally died in an underground bunker, in some kind of Australia ...

        You pray to the wrong god. They will never lift the sanctions and this is clear to everyone. They just need a reason for war, otherwise the public debt has grown significantly. So you don’t need to provide it to them. Let them devour themselves.

        At heart, many forum users agree with you. And I, including But, fortunately, both our and the p-Soviet side are trying to avoid direct clashes, which with a high degree of probability can result in a big war, and not only in the BV. Therefore, each side craps the opposite side through intermediaries. P-sys feed and cover the bearded, and we turn a blind eye to the "dialogue" of the Turks with the Kurds and sell them S-400 on credit. Because of this, aviation “misses” sometimes occur on both sides. And it’s not a secret to anyone that the military capabilities of the n-owls in the region far exceed ours. Therefore, I personally consider the best option for Russia and Syria, if the Turks specifically have a snack with p-themselves and cause each other maximum damage. Therefore, we must strike back through the support of Turkey. But this is my personal opinion.

      GDP said for a nuclear strike of any power, the answer will be immediate. Do not confuse warm with soft. Do you have to get involved in a big war? If you want to fight, go to Syria, Wagner has vacant places ...

        Yes it is. But our Foreign Ministry WARNED the Americans against unjustified attacks on Syria. There is a question about the interpretation of the word caution. In my opinion, the etymology of the word CAUTION implies some consequences from not fulfilling these warnings.

          Naturally. You're right. But who said retaliation would be symmetrical and straightforward. What is called kick to kick? We, after all, are not the United States. ;) Here GDP expressed a direct threat of retaliation, you yourself know to whom. But this is a case that does not tolerate allegories and ambiguity. But it determined this by a certain condition - if the strike would be nuclear. I think the one to whom it was addressed is already scratched tightly in the back of the head ...
          And in diplomacy, caution is one of the most extreme forms of discontent. Unfortunately, neither Lavrov, nor Zakharova can say out loud - "What are you doing there at the end, oh ... are you? !!! For eb ... ku want? !!!". Although this phrase, it would just carry the necessary emotional coloring to the assessment of what is happening in the world. According to this, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is forced to express "concerns" and "warnings." But the form is not important, the content is important. But the content carries the meaning that, according to the rules of decency, they cannot express in hearing. And this warning is the command "Fas!" for the relevant structures, if the meaning of the expressed “warning” does not reach the addressee. Or will be ignored by them. And the consequences are coming. Sometimes immediately, sometimes stretched in time. But certainly. Otherwise, this is an empty air shake and would have been put on us with the device for a long time. But nevertheless they are afraid! So they respect, and that means all these concerns and warnings are all in vain and not in vain ...

    Trump, IMHO, will not risk it - he will run into the work of air defense ... Yes, and a serious risk of "grappling" with Russia ...
    Of course, he is a lover of spontaneous decisions, and crazy, like all the redheads ... But not so much ...

      Yes, the Americans are not afraid of our air defense in Syria. They will cover what they need and that’s all, and we, as usual, will express concern and will boast that the Americans warned us about the strike in advance.

        Firstly, if they were not afraid of our air defense, they would have already struck a blow.
        Secondly, who are you? Are you from the Nostradamus clan? No? In this case, I propose to refrain from such affirmative statements.
        Thirdly, you do not own even a hundredth of the information that our MO owns. You are not even there in Syria, and you do not see what is happening there.

    I do not think that we are more Syrians than the Syrians themselves ....
    Ours are unlikely to act on their own, rather they will transfer air defense systems (Torah and Armor-S) to the Syrians to cover important objects. There seems to have already been more than 60 Pantsir-S, and the Torah was supplied, perhaps they will organize training and tighten discipline. Although, as recent events show, air defense in Syria has more or less risen from its knees.

      The armor has long been transmitted, so that their ranks are probably less than half left. Otherwise, Syria would use them much more actively.

    The air defense grouping given to our air forces in Syria is rather weak, the massive attack of the axes will not repel, and the amerkat will again use the terrain.

    the trump will not hit the volume with the Hawks until the pentagon confirms significant damage. where can he apply it? the capital with the main cities disappears. and the second moment, how many missiles will reach, otherwise Israel last time resting against it could not find only 25% of the missiles that reached Syria.
